Can't Unpin Taskbar Icon - Windows 7

Sat Jun 19, 2021 10:23 am

New Bandicam licensee, accidentally 'pinned' Bandicam icon to Windows 7 taskbar. Tried to unpin as per Windows Help instructions, but the Bandicam taskbar icon does not have a 'unpin' option when right-clicked.

Opened Taskbar Settings and made sure Bandicam was 'Only Show Notifications' but icon still appears following reboot. Tried resetting to 'Hide Notifications And Icon', icon still appears.

Did a Search in the Forum, No Matches Found. :(

How to unpin the taskbar icon???

Thank you for your help!

OK, I tried a couple 'solutions', to no effect. I tried a Windows help fix, which was to click on the Bandicam taskbar icon and drag it to the desktop. Didn't work. Tried to 'unpin' it; there is no unpin option when right-clicking the Bandicam taskbar icon. I tried uninstalling and re-installing Bandicam, still didn't work.

To recap: I'm running Windows 7 SP1 with Classic Shell & Classic Explorer. Licensed/registered Bandicam version 5.1.1.1837. Desktop shortcut; Start Menu shortcut. Bandicam taskbar icon only appears when Bandicam is actually running; it disappears when Bandicam is shut down.

None of my other programs exhibit this behavior. Those icons are fixed in the taskbar, whether program is running or not.

Changing the behavior in Control Panel/Notification Area Icons from Hide to Show to Notify Only has no effect on Bandicam taskbar icon. This is with Windows rebooting after every change.

It's a minor annoyance; I can live with it. :\

Bandicam Support has informed me that the system tray/notification icon is a Bandicam coded feature.

I can learn to live with it. :)
